City considers advertising partnership

News briefs from the April 13, 2015 Greenwood City Council meeting.

Advertising partnership being considered

The Greenwood Board of Trade got past the first hurdle with Greenwood council as city office staff were directed to research the possibility of partnering with the Board of Trade (BOT) and the Greenwood Heritage Society (museum) on an ad in the 2016 Kettle Valley Express visitors guide.

At council’s regular meeting Monday night, Councillor Colleen Lang initially made a motion turning down the opportunity but it was defeated. Lang, along with museum representative Doreen McLean, suggested the Thompson Okanagan Tourism Association (TOTA) guide provide more bang for the buck.

Council grants use of city facilities

The BOT was granted approval for use of both Miner’s Park and the McArthur Centre parking lot for the Mother’s Day Garage Sale on May 9 and 10.

Roland Berg of the Greenwood Bluegrass Festival was given permission to use Barbara Diane Colin Memorial Park for the week Aug.18-125.

Council also gave permission to the Greenwood Volunteer Fire Department to place a training structure inside the curling rink.

Community Forest agreement delivered

Mayor Ed Smith reported that on Monday, March 30 the Honourable Steve Thompson, Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations came to the Vaagen mill in Midway to present the community forest agreement to the municipalities of Greenwood and Midway.

Grant applications approved

Council gave staff permission to apply for two grants: one for the water system and the other for the sewer system.

According to Administrator Robin Dalziel each project would have an estimated $500,000 price tag; with 20 per cent being the responsibility of the city. He said gas tax revenue could be used if the projects go forward.

The approval of council at this time does not commit them to going forward with the projects, however.
